CBS launches new Android app

CBS Interactive released their official CBS News application for Android today. This app is coming after CBS Sports Pro Football, ZDNet France, and the very useful CNET Scan and Shop.

CBSNews offers the latest news stories, video from all of the CBS News shows, and ways that you can share stories and video with Twitter, Email, SMS, etc. CBSNews is yet another application that offers the user a way to view and share the news. Many different news outlets now offer applications in the Android Market; it is now coming down to what news outlet offers the fastest and best way to view stories as well as the most robust ways to share them.

Now, I would have tried the application before I posted to give my impressions, but for the last hour I have been trying to download it through searching the Market as well as scanning the QR codes on Cyrket and Androlib. For some reason it isn’t even showing up in the Market. It may have something to do with the ROM that I am running on the DROID. So, scan the QR below and see if you have any luck.
